    Identification & Functionality

    Chemical Name

    Guar Gum is the flour obtained by grinding the endosperms of seeds of Cyamopsis tetragonolobus (L.) Taub. (Fam. Leguminosae). It consists chiefly of high molecular weight hydrocolloidal polysaccharides composed of galactomannan. The content of galactomannan is not less than 66.0%. Galactomannan consists of a linear main chain of β-(1→4)-glycosidically linked mannopyranoses and single α-(1→6)-glycosidically linked galactopyranoses, and the ratio of the mannose and galactose is from 1.4:1 to 2.2:1.
